Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.

Feb 15: Chinese New Year

Grab some yarn and get creative with artists Nicole and Ryan Higa to make colorful pompom sheep out of yarn, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes. Pompoms are easy to make—perfect for kids of all ages.

Looking ahead:
